Step Back into History as we tell the stories of Pine Grove Cemetery!
Pine Grove Plots Phase 2 – Help us bring Scugog’s heritage to life!
Pine Grove Plots: History To Die For is a new theatrical cemetery walk program, made possible with the support of an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant. Working with Paul Arculus and the Lake Scugog Historical Society, Theatre 3×60 is creating original theatrical vignettes based on unusual, and occasionally mysterious, local heritage events and people, specifically the inhabitants of Prince Albert’s Pine Grove Cemetery. These vignettes will be performed onsite this summer, as part of Theatre 3×60’s Port Perry Summer Theatre programming.
With the help of our community contributors and aspiring wordsmiths, we’ve workshopped 6 stories from local historian Paul Arculus’ book Pine Grove Cemetery. And there are some great stories of love, mishap, mystery and wrongdoing to tell! Playwright Graeme Powell is busy tweaking the scripts in preparation for phase two – final readings and rehearsals.
Performances run alternate Sunday afternoons at 1 pm and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm through July and August, with performances of Ghosts and Ghastly Deaths on July 23 and August 2 and Fame, Fortune and Femmes Fatales on July 9, 19, and August 6.
Admission to Pine Grove Plots: History To Die For is by donation ($10 suggested) at the gate on day of performance only.
Pine Grove Plots: History To Die For is part of Theatre 3×60’s Port Perry Summer Theatre programming. Learn more at wwwportperrysummertheatre.ca
